of the supreme court, certainly intellect, experience, obs vance of the rule of law and precedent. but the supreme court is the final word of what is the law of the land and so therefore i don't want to see more who say that discrimination against women and discrimination based on gender is not protected against under the constitution. when i go by the supreme court on my way to work every day over the mantle it says equal justice under law. it does not say equal justice for some people in america and not for others. and as it relates to row v. wade, i support that. i support a woman's right to choose. my opponent i don't know which view he has. last year he was prolife, now he's pro-choice. >> senator business and industry complain that the 2010 fair act will be expensive and cut into profits and slow the economic recovery. how do you respond to critics who argue that the economic burden of implementing this policy will wind up costing even more american jobs? >> first of all, the reality is what did he have before the law, double premium increases, unsustainable for a family who

. it was the law passed unanimously by congress signed by president clinton in 1993 to restore the scope of religious freedom protection that existed under the free exercise clause which we were railing against. withstand back in place, struck down by the states in 1997 but the federal government, mandated by federal law, we already had two early decisions from district courts involving private plaintiffs or for profit plaintiffs and the issue to address the merits, there were procedural issues because of ongoing regulatory process that might create a sort of interim step in terms of going up and down the court but that actually is going to get resolved between now and august 1st, 2013. the administrative process will be done and the courts will invariably go straight and you will get merit decisions uniformly by the end of next year. >> those that depend on what the administration does and who wins? >> not really. what the administration has put into play is a piece of the problem. and also the constraints they put upon themselves in addressing that limited issue indicates that there is
to tackle. but tonight could the healthcare law be back on the agenda? plus the u.s. military suffered its 2,000th death in afghanistan. three more american troops are dead in a bomb attack tonight, what the latest could mean for the america's war. >> and does anybody remember where we parked the car? but first from fox this monday night. the race for the white house both president obama and the republic presidential nominee mitt romney are out west right now getting ready for their first debate this wednesday. there are a total of three presidential debates scheduled. the first one at the university of denver set to focus on domestic issues. it comes as the new national poll from "the washington post and abc news finds president obama leading 499% to 47% nationally. that's well within the margin of error. but national polls don't actually tell it the whole story because this election will be decided by a handful of swing states. both are spending a lot of time and a lot of money president obama is opening up some sleedz. this first debate could give the president more momentum or help gover
solid government institutions and a judicial branch that treats all venezuelans equally under the law. he was elected to run against chavez after the venezuelan opposition forged an alliance in january. the 40-year-old candidate says he has visited more than 300 venezuelan towns during his campaign. he stepped on to the national scene during a 2002 riot at the cuban embassy in caracas. the chavez government accused him of insighting the riot and sentenced him to jail for four mis. the courts ended up acquitting him. >> you got this young 40-year-old, you know, he's healthy and strong, fit guy and hugo chavez who has been in power for a while. how do they weigh these two? is it a generational thing? how do they split this? >> it's a generational thing. chavez has been suffering from cancer. also just to give you and idea how uneven the playing field is in venezuela, just for the sake of a hypothetical scenario, imagine president obama has a national tv network paid for with public funds that he can use whenever he pleases to campaign. that's exactly what chavez has in venezuela. he has
that the republicans haven't been able to find very much voter fraud to justify all the laws so they decided to create some themselves. that's one of the sort of terrible down sides of this. if they use this as an excuse to e say, we need these tough voter i.d. laws because you made the essential point. there were two broad points of view on this. one is we're so worried about fraud we're going to make it really hard for a lot of people to vote or that the whole process is supposed to make it easy for people to cast ballots. and that the worst thing they did was to destroy people's voter registration forms. but i don't remember anything like this except acorn. and i think this is where we're going to have to ask our conservative friends. they went nuts over acorn, the progressive group having bad registrations. acorn itself, by the way, had called the attention of voter registrars to the fraud themselves. they disciplined themselves. and yet this was a big scandal and acorn lost a lot of money and had to go out of business. why isn't this the same thing for conservatives given what they did? >> the th

state courts could negate some of the new laws that are intended to require photo i.d.s for voters? >> the first observation is in terms of that case in maryland, that was one misguided example where it never should have happened, the race wasn't that close, so it was a huge mistake by that individual and he paid for it with time in prison. in terms of your concern about voter i.d., and having to show i.d., i live in virginia i just got my voter card. they allow anything like a utility bill or anything like that. it's a lot easier to go vote in america than get on an airplane. so if you're worried about fraud, i think these are reasonable requirements. >> i guess in terms of polling, to the extent that our firms can, we try to poll off a registered voter list so they are registered voters who presumably have -- and in elections we try to sample people who not only register but have voted in past elections. >> but this year the requirements for voting are not going to be just that you register, they're going to be that you have a voter i.d. how do you account for that? >> we ask the
. the decision strikes down pennsylvania's new voter i.d. law. democrats say the law disenfranchises voters who don't have photo i.d. republicans say the law is necessary to crack down on voter fraud. >>> intel against centers that started after 9/11 and touted as a center piece of counterterrorism are being blasted by a senate panel this morning. the so-called fusion centers were meant to help local, state and federal officials fight terrorism, but the report says the 77 centers have become pools of wasteful spending and irrelevant and useful intelligence. the report also cites potential spying on american muslims that may have broken privacy laws. the department of homeland security says the report is out of date and misleading and that the centers have been used to thwart terrorist attacks. >>> today martin o'malley will introduce a plan that would allow utilities to add a surcharge to raise money for reliability improvement. o'malley says the plan allows power companies to add a dollar or two to monthly electric bills to pay for maintenance upgrades. in exchange, utilities would have to mee

a good supreme court justice. after all he's picked a couple and taught constitutional law. he said over and over again for him this is all about what's in a judge's heart. when he nominated sonia sotomayor to the supreme court, president obama laid out his criteria for justices. chief among them empathy. >> it is experience that give a person common sense and touch and compassion and understanding of how the world works and how ordinary people live. and that is why it is a necessary ingredient in the kind of justice we need on the supreme court. >> reporter: it's a trait president obama probably wishes more justices shared when they decided citizens united, the case that largely removed independent corporate spending limits on federal political campaigns. he called out the high court during his 2010 state of the union address. >> with all due deference to separation of powers, last week the supreme court reversed a century of law that i believe will open the flood gates for special interests. >> reporter: four months later the president made sure to highlight similar themes when he nomi
